  • Meatloaf bat out of hell

    The song bat out of hell has 5 crescendo in the song. The music is perform with passion and has always been on my top 10 albums of all time. At the end of the song "you took the words out of my mouth" I believe its one of the earliest mic drops, if not the original. All the songs are good and its great for when you hit the highway.

    Meatloaf the king of crescendos.
    Cheers

  • This is a good topic and Bat out of Hell is a classic for sure. I could name a 1000 but I’ll go with a few personal favorites here.

    Allman Bros Band - Live at Fillmore East (one of the greatest live documents ever...but Live at Atlanta Pop Festival is even better IMO) Some of the greatest slide guitar playing ever by Duane with Dickey sharp as could be and that great dual drum sound plus Gregg’s vocals sounding like a 50 year old blues vet at only 22. Truly seminal

    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Pronounced... Incredible debut record establishing a truly unique sound. Influenced more by The Who, Zep and Cream than any country sound, their triple guitar attack and Ronnie’s real life style lyrics and stories made for one of the best albums of the decade. Some think the 2nd record is even better, but the infectious hooks on this debut established their signature style.

    Jimi Hendrix - Are you Experienced? A phenomenal double album filled with guitar virtuoso and studio sounds never ever heard before. The whole album plays like a greatest hits record with not a single low point. Absolutely unreal debut that will stand the test of time.

    The Doors - Morrison Hotel. Most would say the debut or LA Woman (and actually all 6 studio with Morrison are tremendous) but this record returned them to a hard blues rock sound filled with many great album cuts. Not a loser in the set and it flows well. Manzarek really made the Doors with his organ sound and his blues piano really rocks here.

  • Boston don't look back

    This is in my top 5 albums of all time. So much great music. The band was started by a guy that layed down some tracks and the first song was a huge hit, he had to get the artist together to form the band. True story.
    Cheers

  • We’ve had threads like this but it’s been a while, always decent stuff gets brought up.

    I’m a blues guy, so many “albums” that I consider “great” aren’t main stream and well known.

    I’ll list a few better known that I consider “great”, no particular order.

    Crime of the Century
    SuperTramp

    Dream Boat Annie
    Heart

    Venus&Mars
    Paul McCartney

    Rumors
    Fleetwood Mack

    Dark Side of...
    Pink Floyd

  • Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band - Live Bullets. Double album recorded over 2 nights in their hometown of Detroit. The only album that I have literally worn out multiple copies on vinyl and also on cassette before finally CDs were invented and I could put it on a computer.

  • Love what you guys have put up so far. I'm a fan of almost all music, my two least favrites are disco and rap. But I still like some of those like "born to be alive"

    Classical to country, rock and heavy metal are my favorite.

    Heres another great album :Bachman Turner Overdrive not fragile.

    Pmedic920 you must like some Stevie ray Vaughan?

    You're thinking of their second live album, from the early 80s. Live Bullets was from 1976. The second one was good too and had a bunch of songs recorded after the hits started coming in about 1978, but the first one just absolutely blew me away. I actually bought it first after remembering my best friend raving about seeing them warming up for (I think) Lynyrd Skynyrd.

  • I think a better Blue Oyster Cult album is On Your Feet or On Your Knees, which was a live one recorded in 1973 or 74. I had it on 8-track in 75 or 76. UFO had some good stuff too, it's all compiled on The Essential UFO which is also a top album.

    Is this restricted to bands, or do soundtracks qualify for listing?

    It's Never Too Late
    The Pusher
    Sookie Sookie
    Hey Lawdy Mama
    Tenderness?

    I'd have to look up the rest.....

    Steppenwolf is one of the forgotten bands that had a good run during the very late 60s and very early 70s. Them and The Guess Who are two of my favorite bands from that time period that (other than 1 or 2 over-played hits) seem to get overlooked and forgotten about.

    If you want to read an interesting story, read about John Kay from Steppenwolf. He's a hell of a guy and he's had a hell of a life. I tell ya, that song "The Pusher" is a damn good song. Love that raunchy, hippie rock sound they produced.

    I didn't really listen to those bands much growing up. I don't know why, but as a kid I was more drawn to the poppier sounds. Still am in a lot of ways.

    But as I've gotten older I've found more things to enjoy about Nirvana. As a guitar player, I used to hate Kurt Cobain and when I was a teenager I'd bad mouth him and say he sucked and just played a bunch of easy ass drop D crap. But now that I'm actually decent at and know a thing or two about playing guitar, I have to say that I really like the way he played. He was very detailed and consistent with his strumming technique. The guitar stuff he composed was simple but very creative, and that's a tough combination to hit.

    Well, Snowblind Friend was on the vinyl and 8-track versions, but not on the CD. Sookie Sookie. Rock Me Baby. Others that I could come with if I wanted to bend my mind to it (or look on Google, which I didn't).

  • Just a FYI a Greatest hits collection is not a album, it's put together by the Companies to maximize their investment off the bands work.

    Yep, and a lot of artists hate them as it greatly reduces their back catalog album sales. And because they normally just carry singles (often in atrocious 3 min radio edits) the constant commercial sounding tracks get really old quickly. Full non-compilation albums with hidden gems and better flowing work is where it's at.

  • I also gotta throw in Carlos Santana's Abraxus (or however it's spelled). Really, it seems like every one of his albums has at least one hauntingly beautiful instrumental. Going on 50 years now.

  • I got a nice turntable last year, so it's kinda been my hobby to start amassing another record collection...........you know, pay $25 for albums I paid $5 for in the 70's and 80's.

    The awesome thing I missed is not just how records sound (fuller, deeper more rich), but the beauty of listening to an entire album, and the anticipation of the what the next song is........incredible how my muscle memory comes back on some of these albums where I know what the next song is, even though I haven't heard it in decades.

    My first record purchases were;

    - Rumors
    - Amy Winehouse Back to Black
    - ACDC- Back in Black
    - Michael Jackson Off the Wall
    - The Cars (self titled) 1978
    - U2 Joshua Tree
    - Beastie Boys License to Ill and Paul's Boutique
    - Van Halen 1
    - REM Document
    - Who's Next the Who
    - Physical Graffiti
    Sgt. Largent

  • Figured this place was all older white guys, it's showing with the music taste :lol: . I'll bring in some other genres. A lot of recent albums for me. I think it is much easier to say an album is a classic after a 20 years have gone by, but I like spotting them early. I'm really into music, listen to probably at least one new album a week. I do a great job of staying on top of what's current, but could use help getting into older music. Got a turntable a couple years ago and have been collecting records, it's expensive but a lot of fun.

    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    Frank Ocean - channel ORANGE
    Daniel Caesar - Freudian
    Scarface - The Fix
    Scarface - The Diary
    UGK - Ridin Dirty
    JMSN - Velvet
    Kanye West - College Dropout
    Kendrick Lamar - Good Kid Mad City
    Leon Bridges - Coming Home

  • You guys with new turntables need to start checking out thrift stores. Pretty much every one has a rack just filled with old albums. A lot of stuff you've never heard of, but they're all so cheap it doesn't even matter if you buy a sucky one.

  • Going to name a few here. Just a fair warning, I listen to a lot of metal, and my choices will reflect that somewhat.

    Trivium - Shogun <--- Their fourth record is a masterpiece that all hardcore metal fans should listen to.
    Trivium - Ascendancy <--- Another masterpiece. Their second record.
    Trivium - The Sin and the Sentence <--- Also utterly fantastic. Less harsh than previous albums, lots of earworms on this one. Even my chick enjoys this record, and she never used to enjoy metal.

    Metallica - Master of Puppets
    Metallica - Ride the Lightning

    Slayer - Show No Mercy <--- The best Slayer record, in my opinion.
    Slayer - Reign in Blood

    Tool - Lateralus
    Tool - 10000 Days
    Tool - Undertow
    Tool - Aenima

    Jeff Loomis - Zero Order Phase <--- Some of the sickest instrumental metal shredding you will ever hear.

    Megadeth - Countdown to Extinction
    Megadeth - Rust in Peace
    Megadeth - Cryptic Writings
    Megadeth - The World Needs a Hero

    Scale the Summit - The Migration

    Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
    Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream

    Animals as Leaders - The Joy of Motion
    Animals as Leaders - Animals as Leaders
    Animals as Leaders - Weightless

    Primus - Sailing the Seas of Cheese

    The Cure - Disintegration

    Sithu Aye - Set Course for Andromeda

    Soundgarden - Superunknown
    Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger

    Rush - Moving Pictures
    Rush - 2112
